A new or used car is always an exciting purchase—one that is made because you rely on the car’s manufacturer to provide safe vehicles for you (and the drivers you share the road with). When you or someone you love is injured in a car accident because the other driver’s vehicle malfunctioned due to a deadly defect, you are entitled to financial compensation.
Pursuing an individual at-fault driver is the usual way to receive financial compensation after a car accident. When your accident was not caused by the actions, negligence, or behavior of the other driver—but by a manufacturing defect or design flaw in their vehicle—it can be challenging to pursue their vehicle’s manufacturer for financial recovery on your own.
Speak to an Odessa accident caused by deadly defective vehicles lawyer to start preparing your compensation claim for financial recovery right away. Call a member of the personal injury team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins at (800) 777-7777 today to ensure the timely filing of your personal injury lawsuit.
DO NOT PUT OFF FILING YOUR CLAIM FOR FINANCIAL RECOVERY
Even when the other involved driver was at fault for the accident that led to your injuries, and you are clearly entitled to financial compensation claim right away, you could still lose the right to compensation. In Odessa, the Texas statute of limitations applies to your compensation claim. The statute of limitations, found in Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, generally allows someone two years to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver for financial compensation.
Contact a member of our personal injury team as soon as possible to ensure we have as much time as possible to help you comply with the state’s filing deadline. Our firm works hard to protect the rights of injured parties and families whose loved one was killed in an accident caused by vehicle defects or manufacturing flaws.
WE CAN HELP PROVE THE AT-FAULT VEHICLE WAS FLAWED
In Odessa, you are allowed to pursue financial compensation after a car accident on your own. There are benefits and advantages to hiring a lawyer which you should consider, though.
We might be able to hire consultants, mechanics, and automotive industry professionals to examine the at-fault vehicle (or vehicles of like make and model) for potentially deadly design defects. We can use details and information in your crash report to prove points of impact, vehicle travel speeds, and other important details that indicate the circumstances surrounding the accident.
Members of our investigative team can also look for recall notices and other points of consumer law that indicate functional problems of the at-fault vehicle in question. Put our resources and team members to work. We can determine the precise cause of the defect in the vehicle that struck yours. Consider hiring our legal team to represent you in investigating, settling, or trying your personal injury case in court.
You do not have to pursue financial compensation on your own. Put an Odessa accident caused by deadly defective vehicles lawyer to work on your compensation claim when you contact the personal injury team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins by calling (800) 777-7777 today.
ASSESS YOUR POTENTIAL MONETARY RECOVERY
After a car accident caused by a deadly defective vehicle in Odessa, you could have the basis of a claim for financial compensation. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 41.001, you can request compensation for the following economic damages:
- Medical bills to date
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages to date
- Future lost wages
- Vehicle repair costs
- Vehicle replacement costs
These are typically the most straightforward damages to calculate because they require simply adding the costs of tangible expenses that come with receipts and bills. You can also request compensation for the following non-economic damages, though:
- Pain and suffering
- Physical disfigurement
- Physical disability
- Mental angst
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
The value of your non-economic damages can be more challenging to calculate on your own. A personal injury lawyer can help you reach a favorable financial value. They can use the value of your claim to negotiate a financial settlement that covers your accident-related expenses and losses.
